I have been a creative artist for over 30 years working in water color, printing, etching, bronze casting, acrylic, sculpture and encaustic. For over 10 years I have had my own studio at Fountain Street Studio: A great place to create on your own.

But what I love about the Makerspace is the interaction with all the other people, learning, listening, brainstorming with them and hanging out.

All of a sudden I find myself looking at magnet data sheets to make sure that chess pieces constructed out of old nuts, bolts and water sprinkler heads are sticking to a Moebius chess board, which ended up being displayed a Boston Figment 2015. The Makerspace allows me to contribute with my artist skills to projects while learning new techniques, tackle big machinery and at same time create something with others that I might never have previously imagined.
